Arsenal and Liverpool in transfer ‘auction’ for £50m-rated Frankfurt star Jesper Lindstrom with both clubs in talks

ARSENAL and Liverpool are set to go head to head in a transfer battle for Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Jesper Lindstrom.

An “auction” for the Dane could see his initial price tag of around £35million soar to close to £50m, according to Sport Witness.

Jesper Lindstrom is wanted by Arsenal and Liverpool

The 23-year-old began his career at Brondby before moving to the Bundesliga club after two spectacular seasons for the Danes.

Last season was his first full one at Frankfurt and saw him chip in with seven goals in 27 appearances.

Arsenal and Liverpool are both said to have “been in contact” following his impressive start with the Bundesliga side.

A bidding war is now expected with Newcastle and Tottenham also said to be interested.

Inter Milan and Juventus are said to be aiming to lure the midfielder to Serie A, reports claims.

Frankfurt are reportedly “planning for the sale” of the Dane, who has ten caps, and should make a healthy profit on the £5m they paid Brondby for him in 2021.

Mikel Arteta is looking to continue his summer splurge after splashing out £200m on Kai Havertz, Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber.

Meanwhile, Anfield has welcomed midfielders Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai already, with Southampton’s Romeo Lavia also being identified as a top target.

But Jurgen Klopp still wants to bolster his midfield ranks after the departures of captain Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Fabinho.
